Jets waive quarterback Bryce Petty after 3 seasons
The move Thursday comes a week after the Jets drafted USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick.
Petty played in 10 games with the Jets, including seven starts, and threw for 1,353 yards and four touchdowns with 10 interceptions. The former Baylor star started New York’s final three games last season – all losses – after McCown was lost for the year with a broken left wrist.
Petty’s lone win as a starter came in 2016, when he filled in for an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick at San Francisco and rallied New York from a 14-point deficit to a 23-17 overtime victory.
